Yoga is defined as “stilling the fluctuations of the mind,” “skill in action,” and “evenness of mind.” 

Today we have growing mental health concerns. The life path of being okay with being “who I am” is defined by the measurement of achievements and then labels such as mentally deficient, sensory-compromised, neurotic, bi-polar, depressed, etc, can begin to define the individual. Rather than address the source, that there is a separation of self from Self and learning tools to address dynamics of the mind, a pill is given.  

Yoga, as a tool of awareness combined with the āyurveda understanding of one’s prakṛti and vikṛti helps a student know, mature and address their innate nature and live their dharma. Using yoga tools offers awareness and the opportunity to practice on the mat. Then the client can practice awareness and mental stability in their life and the world. The workshop is an overview of yoga tools to support students with a mental diagnosis.
